Ohio moves to full-risk managed Medicaid

On February 1, more than 1.1 million Ohio Medicaid members began receiving healthcare through participating managed care plans. Most beneficiaries are enrolled in the covered families and children (CFC) group, and, for the first time, the Office of Ohio Health Plans also has enrolled its aged, blind, or disabled (ABD) Medicaid population in managed care plans. Although Medicaid managed care has existed in Ohio since 1978, the expansion of Medicaid managed care in Ohio began in July 2005 with the enactment of Amended Substitute H.B. 66, Ohio's state fiscal year 2006-2007 biennial budget, which mandated the use of managed care for Ohio's Medicaid program, explains Jon Barley, PhD, chief of the Bureau of Managed Health Care in the Office of Ohio Health Plans in Columbus.
